Who Is This?

In a time of uncertainty, questions abound. But questions are nothing new. During the life and ministry of Jesus, questions surrounded him and his motives. In a new series called Questioning Jesus, we will examine questions asked to, by and around Jesus to see how these questions can shape our faith.

Leave a Mark on the Church

Pastor Brent looks at how even though many today consider church to be optional, Jesus considered the church the best and most effective way to change the world and the importance of those following Jesus to leave a mark on and through the church.
